The Sewing Rebellion is a free workshop, which began in Chicago Fall of 2006 and now has a home base in Long Beach CA, at the Institute 4 Labor Generosity Workers & Uniforms. Participants of the Sewing Rebellion are invited to emancipate themselves from the global garment industry by learning how to alter, mend and make their own garments and accessories! Hosted by Frau Fiber and an army of Faux Fraus, the Sewing Rebellion distributes knowledge of the garment industry, pattern making and sewing, and encourages the reuse, renovation and recycling of existing garments and textiles in the creation of unique items tailored to individual tastes and body shapes.
